Mfegue likens new Kotoko teammate Yussif Nurudeen to Liverpool’s Van Dijk

Mfegue speaks highly of new teammate Yussif Nurudeen

Asante Kotoko attacker Georges Mfegue has likened new teammate Yussif Nurudeen Mohammed to Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.

Mfegue who has spent two seasons at Asante Kotoko, says Yussif Nurudeen is a tough defender and was finding it difficult whenever he comes against the former RTU defender in the Ghana Premier League.

To Mfegue, the newly-signed Asante Kotoko defender is a complete version of Liverpool and Netherlands defender Virgil Van Dijk.

“He plays like Van Dijk. He has everything. Good in the air and on the ground physically and technically [He’s is good].

“Sure [I’m happy he won’t be my opponent anymore]. I don’t like it when defenders push me and chase me with so many tackles so if he is in my team now, I am very happy about that.”

Yussif Nurudeen Mohammed has joined Asante Kotoko on a three-year deal in the ongoing transfer window.

He signed for the Porcupine Warriors on free following the expiration of his contract with RTU after the 2022/23 league season.

Yussif Nurudeen was instrumental for RTU and played an important role in maintaining the club’s premier league status last season.

The highly-talented defender is expected to make his debut for Asante Kotoko in week I of the 2023/24 season of the Ghana Premier League against Hearts of Lions.
